Tigers Edges by Senators in Twelve

September 11, 1935 Senators 4, Tigers 3 (86-47)

The Tigers didn’t fare too well in their four game series against the Senators, who were battling two other teams for last place in the American League. The Tigers gave Tommy Bridges a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning, but the Senators bounced back with two of their own in the third. The Senators took the lead in the seventh, but the Tigers answered in the top half of the eighth to send the game into extra frames.

Tommy Bridges threw all twelve innings and ended up costing himself the chance at a win. With runners on first and second, Senators shortstop Red Kress laid down a bunt. Bridges fielded it and threw it away trying to get the lead runner at third base which allowed the winning run to score.

The Tigers ended the game with sixteen hits but only three Tigers crossed the plate. Hank Greenberg had a big game with the bat as he went four for five with four singles and a run.
